The Long Island City-based real estate firm Modern Spaces has been using social media to market its properties and boost branding—and, in so doing, has experienced a large growth in audience and engagement.

Modern Spaces has seen a 500% increase in its audience and a 69.1% increase in engagement on social media, all while doubling the frequency of their posting. The large increase in how often the firm posts provides the audience with a more engaging and dynamic content experience.

Modern Spaces currently has over 21,000 followers on Facebook, over 16,500 on Instagram and over 15,300 on X (formerly known as Twitter).

This growth has been credited to Njomza Kastrati.

Modern Spaces has used social media to build communities, share neighborhood stories and support local businesses, helping to create an online presence that extends beyond just traditional real estate promotion.

“The biggest achievement is turning Modern Spaces channels into a lively community hub, shaping
social life and building connections,” Kastrati said. “Looking forward, we plan to enhance its real estate social media presence, introducing interactive property tours, live Q&A sessions and user-driven

When it comes to handling social media platforms, Kastrati has three important tips: create visually stunning content; ensure consistency and embrace the authenticity of the brand.
